I am so happy to annouce i made the design team on Incy Wincy Designs!!! My first challenge was to make a card using die cuts or punches!
The Sponsor for this week is Peggy Loves Vintage
Here is a little information about Peggy:
I'm lucky enough to be a retired grandma who spends the day working with my vintage card collection. My husband and I have shared almost 37 years together and we have 2 sons and a daughter and 2 glorious grand kids that turn 4 and 7 in May.
I started collecting Vintage Greeting Cards quite by accident. I was helping with an Aunt's estate sale and ran across her Vintage Greeting Card collection. The images on the Vintage Cards were so bright and cheerful that I just fell in love with them. As my collection grew and provided such joy and entertainment for me, I knew that others would get as much out of them as I did. So I decided I'd share my collection thus, the birth of PeggyLovesVintage.
Each card is carefully scanned at a 600 dpi resolution and saved in .jpg format. I only scan cards that are free of any copyright restrictions. I keep each and every card, so if any question ever arise I can provide documentation that this is truly the case.
Special software is not required to use my images. If you have printed out a picture from a digital camera, it’s pretty much the same concept and just as easy. Of course if you are so inclined, and if you do have imaging software, you can clone, cut and paste and even change the colors on the image.
The possibilities are endless, so please take a moment and visit my web store by clicking below or copy and paste the link into your browser. So sit back, relax and enjoy your journey back in time.
You can also find PeggyLovesVintage images on Etsy.com and eBay.
Hugs to all!
Here is what i did:
I decided to go for a vintage distressed look this time, as i don't do them very often. I used Tim Holtz Distress ink in Tea Dye. The scalloped circles are punched out and then embossed. I put some distress ink inside the folder before embossing. The frame around the image is a nestie die. I sanded all the edges for an extra distressed look.
